The blocks were released with the TKI3. The standard 6mm bolts are too short and don't go all the way through. I got hold of some 8mm and no probs with stripping threads now. Nuts are good insurance but with a little blue loctite on 8mm bolts they are not required. Also keeping this area of the car as light as possible is good for the balance.

All right guys, I just ordered a kit and will be here Tuesday! I love my OS Speeds so that will provide the power and keep my perfect KO Propo servos I have been running in the Mugen. I ordered the 1.3x8. Pistons, 93mm units for the front, orange springs f/r, and a spare set of arms! Also, a Proline body that I will have Larry at Kustom RC Graphics paint up for me! I am excited for a new challenge and look forward to trying this car! I must say out of the 100's threads I have sen this has been the most informative and well ran threads as it never gets off topic and some of the main Kyosho guys are on this thread unlike many other brands........

With all that being said, I have read every post on the last 50 pages and just want a summary to refresh on some basic build tips and hints????

Also, I will search here in a minute but does the TKI3 come with the narrow or the +2 rear hubs on it?

My paycheck next week will go to the aluminum front hubs......


Thanks in advance and any and all tips would be appreciated!

One other thing, I see a lot of guys running the Kcar lose their mesh a lot! The engine mount screws are always coming loose and eating clutch bells. I guess red loctite or what is up with that as I know the engine mount system isn't as conventional as other brands......

The tki2 and 3 comes with the offset rear aluminum hubs and used the narrow hexes and there is nothing wrong with the mounts I have ran kyosho for years and never had one come loose

Ok so it comes with the wide on the rear? What is the main handling difference one notices in going to the narrower rear hub setup?

i think what he is talking about is the hub carriers are 2mm offset in rear. The hex the rim mounts to in rear is considered narrow it makes wheelbase in rear more narrow than the front. Most off the pro guys run the regular hex in rear with narrow track width adjustment. Which is adjustable with pills that insert in the arm.

Oh man I am a little confused but I know it is simple and will make sense once I tear into the kit and build it. I know Mugen through and through and run the +2 rear hubs on it but sounds like the my Paul has more adjustments with the hubs and hexes.... It will all make since once I see it and look at parts!

Pre Black Friday Specials

Regarding the shaft lengths, I think everyone must run them differently . Some guys like Marty Korn run 93mm all the way around, I run 93/91 f/r, Cody runs the same, some guys run 91s all the way around, and apparently some guys run 91/93 f/r! Some guys even run the MP7.5 shafts, and I've heard of guys running the 777 shafts too. The only thing I can say for certain is I've never seen 93s pop out, but I've never seen 91s pop out of the rear either. This is with the narrow track width in the rear. If you run 91s anywhere, be sure to put the shims on first, then install the shaft. 93s, you install the shaft, then add the shims.
Hard to resist, plunge taken

Ok, there's two types of rear hubs. There's a "standard" set, which were standard on the earlier MP9 kits:

IFW410

And these are the 2mm offset hubs which are now standard in the MP9 TKI3 kits:

IFW414

I believe the kits come with these in the rear for wheel hexes:

IFW326GM

They're 1mm narrower than the ones in the front, which are these:

IFW107GM

We typically run the IFW107s in the rear as well as front. The narrower hubs will help lock the rear in a little bit more. Hope that clears it up a bit for you.

Ok, thanks Sean. It is all making sense now. I downloaded the manual and setup sheets and it made everything come together. I get it now. I guess I will also order IFW107 hubs and I should be golden! Thanks for the help!

So you prefer the longer "front" hexes all around, as opposed to the included "narrow" rear hexes that are standard on the tki2/3?

For sure, that's what I use as my default base setup.
